Cocktail of the Week: Strawberry Citrus Smash

Strawberry Citrus SmashFor this cocktail cooler use ripe, fresh Strawberries for a pure taste of summer!

2 cups frozen Strawberries
¼ cup Rose’s Lime juice
¼ cup Lemonade
2 oz Lemon Flavored Vodka
1/4 oz Grand Marnier or another Orange Flavored Liquor

Clean and hull fresh strawberries at least a day in advance. Place the strawberries in a single layer on cookie sheet and put into the freezer until frozen. Once frozen, transfer the fruit to a freezer container or storage bag. Can’t wait? Pick up a bag or two of frozen strawberries at your local grocery store.

Put all of the ingredients in a blender and puree. Pour into tall glasses, garnish with Strawberry and enjoy!

 

Cocktail of the Week: Margarita – my personal recipe!

Margarita

Great for big batches or just one delicious drink, this is the Halpern house special recipe.

1 Part Tequila – I prefer Cabo Wabo Reposado but use your favorite
1/2 part Grand Mariner or other Orange Liquor
1 part Lemon Juice
1 part Lime Juice
Splash of Grapefruit Juice
If this is too tart for your taste, sparingly add a little Agave Syrup
Sliced Lime
Kosher Salt

Wipe the rims of your glasses with the end of a sliced lime. Pour salt onto a small plate and dredge the rim of each glass through the salt to coat. Add all ingredients and ice to a shaker or large beverage container. Shake or mix well. Pour into salt-rimmed glasses. Ole!
